InnoDB is a popular database storage engine for the MySQL DBMS. It’s an alternative to the default engine – MyISAM, and it has got many strong sides that make it the engine of choice for a lot of open-source script-driven applications, including Magento and Joomla, which have switched to InnoDB for good. For example, importing immense amounts of data will be much faster with InnoDB, as it locks only a single database row to carry out a particular task, not the entire table, which makes the engine ideal for scalable applications. It also supports foreign keys and database transactions – these refer to the manner in which the data is handled. Simply put, importing new or modifying existent data will either be thoroughly completed, or will be canceled and the procedure will be rolled back in case any issue occurs in the meantime, therefore the content that remains in the database won’t be damaged.
